  1. My grandma makes something similar but with mini pumperknickel squares. she spreads the cream cheese mixture onto the square and tops with a cucumber and dill. So this is a great take on something I grew up with! thank you for sharing!

  2. I made these several times and they always come out great and quickly! I’d recommend them to anyone who wants to impress their guests.
